OxyElite Pro Review – My Thoughts and Impressions

21 02 2011


  • It’s effective
  • Boosts weight loss
  • Boosts energy
  • Suppresses appetite
  • Minimal side effects


  • Extremely potent
  • Causes sweating
  • Pricy

When I began searching for a fat-burner to incorporate in my P90X routine, OxyElite Pro was one of the first and most hyped products that I found. Just typing OxyElite Pro into Google will produce almost 300,000 results, with pages upon pages of positive reviews. While researching OEP and reading so many raving reviews on it, I couldn’t help but wonder if this product can really be as great as everyone says it is. Can you really lose weight with this fat burner? Does it live up to the hype, or is it just another weight loss fad? Well, after using OEP for six weeks, I found that it did in fact live up to the hype.

OEP is the first fat burning supplement that I’ve ever used and it has definitely set the bar high. The very first day that I began using it, I noticed the stimulants start working within the first 30 minutes. It didn’t make me anxious or paranoid, and it didn’t give me the jitters (as others have reported in their reviews), but what it did provide me with was a constant and reliable source of energy and focus throughout the day. It usually takes me about two hours and multiple cups of coffee to really get the energy and focus that I need to carry out my daily tasks, but one pill of this stuff in the morning and another early in the afternoon would have me ready to go.

While using OEP, there was a noticable change in my appetite. I had to force myself to eat my usual 6-8 meals a day, and meeting my intake goal of 1800 calories daily was almost a challenge in itself. But I managed, and it really worked out for the better.  It is important that you stick to a healthy diet while using this product. If you fail to do so, the appetite suppression will not be as effective as it should be.

Another great thing that I noticed was that I was burning between 50 and 75% more calories during cardio-intensive workouts. During the Kenpo X routine in P90X, I was burning roughly 650 calories before starting with the OEP. While using OEP, however, my calories burned went up to around 950, and some days even upwards of 1150 calories burned in a single workout.  And by the end of the workout, I was rarely exhausted and honestly could have burned even more calories.

While OEP is definitely a very effective product, it is no magic pill.  A healthy diet and workout routine is crucial for this product to work.  While you would probably still benefit from some of the energetic properties without a proper diet and workout plan in place, the fat burning aspect of OEP would not be effective.  It is a very potent product and should be used with care.  It is recommended to take a multivitamin while using OEP, or it could have unwanted side-effects such as minor hair loss and changes in skin complexion.  Another downside of the product is the price.  At $40 for the 90 capsule bottle (at GNC), it is quite pricy.  I will say, though, that results are worth the price you pay for the product.

In rating OxyElite Pro, I give it the following scores:

  • WEIGHT LOSS  9.5/10
  • ENERGY  8.5/10
  • PRICE  5.5/10

OxyElite Pro is without a doubt one of the best weight loss supplements on the market.  I haven’t tried them all, but after using OEP for six weeks during the P90X routine, I will not be using any other product for weight loss in the near future.  The large list of benefits heavily outweighs the few negatives that are associated with it.  I have already recommended the product to friends and family who are looking to lose weight fast, and will continue to do so until a better product comes out.  But until then, I’ll be using OxyElite Pro.


My goals for 2011

29 12 2010

I am a “lists” kind of guy. I like to make lists. Even when it comes to pointless things like the books I want to read, or the movies i want to watch; I just like to make lists! So naturally, I’m going to make a list of my goals for the year of 2011. I don’t really like calling them “resolutions”, because who actually calls goals resolutions? You don’t say “My resolution is to finish this report by Friday.” Besides, the whole New Year’s Resolution thing is worn out, and it can intimidate people into not setting any goals at all for the upcoming year. Its a brand new year and setting some short-term and long-term goals wouldn’t hurt anything. If you don’t meet them, then so what?

I thought I would share my list of goals for the upcoming year for a few reasons: (1) I’ll have somewhere online to reference and mark off the goals that I reach, and remind me of the ones that I don’t. (2) As I complete each goal, I will mention on the blog how I did it, how it has affected me, and what I gained from it. It will be interesting for me to look back on, and hopefully interesting for you to read as well.

And so, here are my goals for the year of 2011. I took the time to categorize them into professional goals, personal goals, and financial goals. I also noted whether they are short-term or long-term commitments.

(L) = Long-term
(S) = Short-term

(L) Blog more often / Show more dedication
(S) Find a new job / Move to day shift
(L) Finish and manage website for Five Star

(L) P90X round two (and keep the weight off!)
(S) Take my wife on a date to the beach
(S) Read The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
(L) Read my Bible and pray more
(L) Be more active in church
(S) Paint/Renovate at least one room in the house
(S) Deep cleaning of the house
(L) Improve my handwriting
(S) Inspire Someone
(L) Have a more positive attitude in general

(L) Save more and spend less
(L) Pay off my truck
(L) Pay off half of my credit card debt

And there you have it, my goals for 2011. Have you made any plans for the new year yet? Do you plan on doing so? If so, share some of them with me.
